What being a part of Fisher House means……to our staff, Judyann Schneider

What being a part of Fisher House means to our staff…..Manager Robert Campbell

 “To be a part of such an amazing organization that takes care of our nation’s veteran’s is such an honor and privilege. It means waking up with a sense of purpose each day knowing that I am affecting the lives of veterans and their families. It means as a veteran myself and helping veterans through a difficult time in their lives and I want to pay forward the hospitality to them and in return when I need assistance the Fisher House will be there for me and my family.” 

Words from our Guests April 20, 2023

Ever wonder about the impact of staying at a Fisher House for our military families?  Read here.

“To the wonderful people here at Fisher House – what a kind, loving, amazing place this is.  You go above and beyond with your beautiful set up, building and grounds.  Sinc we live in NH, when our son was hurt in Florida, you so kindly were able to put us up while we healed in adjoining rooms.  My husband was able to work remotely and I was able to help assist his recovery.  We were here a lot longer than I thought we would be, yet you never once made us feel uncomfortable.  God bless you!”

Progressive Health Clinic donates $1100

Dr. Godwin hosted a Patient Appreciation Day March 16 and named our Eglin Fisher House as a beneficiary.  They raised awareness, celebrated their patience on their health journey AND netted an $1110 donation to bless military and veteran families staying with us for hope and 

healing.  They received a tour of our house where the love happens and we were able to showcase  them in this check presentation.  Why Dr Godwin?  EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE AT THE PROGRESSIVE HEALTH CLINIC! They exist to help people like you and your family be the best you can be and they love our mission at Fisher House.   Dr. Godwin is known for his Specificity, Customized Care, and Long-Term Results!  CALL TODAY! (850) 374-3926, or online.

Dr. Andrew Godwin is a chiropractor, acupuncturist, and functional medicine doctor who serves Fort Walton Beach and the surrounding communities in Florida. He uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient’s lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Godwin takes a “whole person” approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column.  AND he loves our military  like we do!
